the battery light is on due to the engine not starting. there are too many things that could go wrong to diagnose without more info. does the it crank but won't start or does it not crank at all?

Did AAA clean the battery cable connections when they installed your battery? Did you check the fuse for the insrument panel?
It could be just bad timing or a coincidense but I am more likely to think things are connected. If your gauges worked after jump starting your car, but not after AAA changed the battery, something changed or was left disconnected.

It could be the starter, but it could be the alternator isn't charging the battery enough to keep the system charged enough so you can get started all the time. I'd get the alternator checked, and charge the battery fully , once you charge the battery have it LOAD tested, to be sure all the cells are working properly. I don't know which motor your car has, but rule of thumb is, follow the positive battery cable and it takes you to it !!! If those 2 things check out, Its time for a starter

I'm thinking its the battery. Heat kills batteries. You said it wont jump start. That's a dead ringer for a bad battery. It may have enough juice to power some things, but wont run the starter, or the fuel pump, or the ignition(spark). Try a new battery and let me know!

Your alternator is out. Those are classic symptoms of alternating going out. The alternator recharges your electrical system and when it goes out a list of strange things go on inside the dash, and you won't be able to go very far on just a battery. I'm glad you at least made it home. But yes you will need a new alternator for sure. Please rate this response so I can get my ratings back up to 90% at least.

Tips for a great answer:
Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on
where door sticks)
all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive
that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the
AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air
temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this
door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common
complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these
parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire
dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or
qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.
Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.
